The activist, model and personal trainer Braima Djata released his new collection of African-inspired clothing named “Banhina Ferre” — a term which means “ Nô djubi djitu ” (let’s find a way) in the West African native language, Balanta.
Djata, who is also a representative of the company NOBALUR since 2017 (the year he started selling his clothes), is well known for his philanthropy and for being involved in several donations across Guinea-Bissau.
His inspiration came from the renowned stylist São Bibas and her daughter Bianca, who played a big part in introducing him to the world of fashion. After being involved in several fashion shows, for both national and international brands, the model decided to create his own clothing line.
In May 2018, Djata introduced the world to his new brand named BD, which stands for his initials (Braima Djata), at the well-known TV program BEM-VINDOS, aired in Portugal by the channel RTP. Two years later, he decided to launch his 3rd collection in a digital and professional manner due to the lack of a physical store.
“I opted for a style of clothing that identifies with me, and generally, this is the style of clothing that I would use on Galas and ceremonies of great importance.”
“This 3rd collection focuses more on males, because there is a higher demand coming from them whenever they see me with the clothes.”
Braima Djata promises that soon there will be a collection made for females only.
The new collection is already available for purchase at the NOBALUR STORE on Instagram.
